Do you have something that you have to conquer before you can receive God’s word?
Do you believe the lie that if something isn’t easy then well it just isn’t for you? And it’s hard to hear God in this noisy life on earth and so that must mean that you aren’t meant to hear Him. Aren’t meant to feel His Fatherly care and love.
This is all Satan’s attempt to keep you and me from the peace that God has. Don’t buy into it!
Yes, it’s hard.
No, I promise it isn’t easier for other people who make it seem easy. They are working hard to get to Jesus. They are living in human bodies just like you. They have to conquer physical pain, emotional pain, poor living conditions, maybe no Bible, maybe a country where their faith isn’t even legal.
And please here me friend, your struggle is hard. I get it, but definitely not too hard.
I am so amazed at how we people will push on through heavy circumstances but we don’t stop long enough to take the time to care for our faith that could pull us up and out of some of the things we think we have to carry on our own.
Fight that lie today! You do not have to carry your burdens alone – ever. While you may have to prove yourself to a boss, a landlord, a client today you most definitely don’t have to prove yourself to your God.
He came and rescued us.
He came and offered a payment for our sins – Jesus’ life on the cross – NOT YOURS AND MINE. But a free pardon for OUR sins paid for by Someone else. Why do we think we would have to start paying now?
This – with God our Father – is a place you are supposed to profess weakness and need. And Always find adequate Love, Strength, and Hope.
Come to Him and rest ~
